How to create a desktop shortcut that includes UserID and Password
I would like to know how to add my User ID and Password to allow seamless login to a site by using the userid and password
I have an existing shortcut and would like FF to open and login to the site with one "double-click"
I do appreciate that it is a security risk to do this, but the information on this site poses no risk for me if someone that has authorized access to my personal computer, click on this shortcut.
I will appreciate any help to assist me in doing this.

Create a desktop shortcut to a website
Thanks for the advice, but the website does not give the option to save the password, hence my question
Any other way I can perhaps in the properties specify that?
Some websites use autocomplete=off to prevent Firefox from saving and filling the name and password.
You can remove autocomplete=off with a bookmarklet to make Firefox save the name and password.

You will probably have to use a script in Greasemonkey or Scriptish to achieve this.
You can try to ask advice in the Userscripts.org forum.
